Huntington Beach <3
Happy Saturday everyone! Woke up to beautiful weather, so I took advantage and went for a run this afternoon. The best study break. It’s also Easter weekend and on the Saturday it’s Polish tradition to go bless your Easter basket (full of eggs, sausage, bread, etc.), then you eat all the blessed food on Sunday. So that was today’s bizz: bless, study, workout…and of course some more Easter prep for tomorrow. Essex is arriving late tonight, too; so excited to see him! Anyway, speaking of sunny days…thought I would share what mornings in Huntington Beach look like. I love Huntington Beach, it’s away from the hectic factor of LA but still has a lively vibe. Kind of like a Californian Whistler. First thing’s first: coffee and breakfast. There’s a little spot right off PCH called 602 Coffee House. There’s outdoor seats facing the water (we watched some storm clouds roll in…then roll out haha), perfect for soaking up the sun. My latte was super good, and they have açaí bowls, too! Try the one with peanut butter: delish. Next up: shopping (or browsing) on Main St. This is the place to go for anything surf related: wetsuits, bikinis, boards…so much of all of it and so many shops to choose from. Also, lots of clothes from all the fave surf babe brands (Billabong, Rip Curl, etc.). What I love about Huntington is it’s history. It’s been a surf town since back in the day (I mean it’s known as Surf City USA haha) and I love looking at old photos of the town and beach (especially the evolution of people’s swimwear haha). There’s actually a cute little coffee shop inside one of the surf shops called Java Point, complete with Hurley coffee cups. Another must is a stroll on the pier. Watching waves roll in overlooking the beach is just so damn pretty. There’s even a paved trail along the whole beach perfect for biking or running…or patio sessioning haha. If you walk to the very very end of the pier, you’ll find Ruby’s Diner: it’s been there since the 80’s and is still serving customers. An old school 50’s themed diner on the pier…so dope. The historic Orange County piers have such a neat vibe to them. Seal Beach pier is great, too…both the pier and the beach are little quieter: perfect for a chill afternoon of reading and surfing after a fun morning in Huntington. Happy weekending babeskillets, Tita xx
